    Default I feel terrible....... Trolls on Forums

    I've been on a different forum for 6 months , can't say which I don't think for breaking the policy here. On it I've helped over a 100 newbie people out with hi fi recommendations. I'd posted around a 1000 posts.

    I had a troll which they didn't do anything about and I lost it in the last few days, and found their moderators aggravating me too in the last day. I'm a bit shamed to admit I lost it. I even sent the owner the troll message to me admitting he was trolling me. In the end I was banned and the troll stayed there.

    I'm not a nasty person , I love hi fi, but I feel absolutely terrible at the moment. I've been mentally unwell with depression for some time and have tried a number of times to kill myself in the last few years with money and job worries even though at times I've done ok, I haven't for some time now.

    I feel right now I want to drink myself into oblivion and throw that bloody hi fi off my balcony and me with it. All a load worth of newish pmc 25 series, cyrus signature stuff and chord cables. In fact I feel like I want to give it away for the bad feeling connected with it. I just can't believe these people on that forum would be so callous and ungrateful when I'd helped so many of their readers out.

    That's a shame Simon. I'm sure we can cheer you up. Stick with us matey!

    Depression's a bugger. I had that many years ago. Fortunately, it just faded away (if that's the right term).

    Simon, youre in the right place here. This is a great forum with a lot of really great people.

    Dont give up and keep going with us. Put on a really lively album and just let it get you going again. Trolling isnt an issue here and the moderators are excellent at keeping order when its occasional breached with a dodgy comment.

    Feel better, tomorrow is a new day.

    Simon,

    I admire your candour regarding the identity of the forum, but as the moderators there seem to be incapable of dealing with the trolling to mutual satisfaction, then I would just shrug my shoulders and walk away. No forum or on-line social medium is worth getting upset about and causing you to get depressed.

    Just say "sod 'em", make a cup of tea and sit down and enjoy some music on your perfectly good system!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I feel for you and perhaps no words can help, but please stick with it.

    In life we have to deal with people who have strange psyche and questionable manners, never easy.

    All the best

    Thank you all for comments which has made me feel quite a bit better and cheered me up. But as an 'Essex boy' myself (colchester/wivenhoe) your one audio al made me laugh. I don't think I've seen emojis like that before. Lol.

    But then people from Essex are very down to earth and say it how it is, so I admire that.
